Wonderful Winchester

Sorry about the week long blogging silence. I was very busy last week, styling a shoot for Exalt Magazine http://www.exalt-magazine.com and sadly with all the prepping, shooting and returns I didn’t have any time to update. The shoot was an 8 page editorial story and it is going to look amazing. Unfortunately I can’t blog anything about it yet, but I will do when the publication comes out in a couple of months.

Instead today’s blog is a pictoral post about the beautiful city of Winchester, which I recently visited. With it’s wealth of heritage, culture and history it is the perfect spot for an August weekend away from London. Plus the charity shops and monthly vintage market are fantastic places to pick up a unique bargain. I also spotted some great typography and some amazing painted bollards. Check them out. My favourite is the Pollock inspired post. Which is yours?
